but also the there's been a disengagement on the part of the obama administration itself. >> woodruff: what do you mean? >> they view iraq as just another country. they don't have the same emotional or psychological or even foreign policy stake in it that the previous administration had. so i think the united states can't solve all the problems in iraq certainly but it's not playing as active role in mediating these internal issues. >> woodruff: what's the relationship rajiv between the people of iraq and their government. how is that working? >> depends on which people. for the majority shiite population they see the government has largely working in their interests. the others look at the government and say these people aren't here to help me and serve me. i think there is a desire among many iraqis for a big tent, more secular government. but that's not the shape of the political system that they have today. in my view this is a result of the legacy of the american occupation and our military intervention there. the decisions made almost ten years ago today deba'ath phiing the country, e

campbell reports from our washington, d.c. newsroom, the obama administration is now making a push for all spy agencies to have the same access. >> reporter: there's a report out from "reuters" and it says there is a treasury department document stating the obama administration wants to give all u.s. spy agencies access to a massive financial database. right now, only the fbi has full access to the database. other spy agencies like the cia and national security agency have to file case by case request to get that same information. and "reuters" says the white house is taking action so the agencies can have unlimited access. banks have to report any cash transactions over $10,000 as suspicious and they get put into this database.

bellicose language. this is really a disappointment on the part of the obama administration more broadly when they look at north korea. they were hoping that the new leader, kim jong-un, who took over after his father died, would be more willing to work with the united states. but that is not the case. in fact, they have looked at the situation in north korea, and say that it really appears as though they are moving in the opposite direction, more bellicose, more isolated, so they are watching the country very closely. president obama, of course, has mapped out an ambitious second term agenda which includes immigration reform. a new gun control legislation. but a lot of people say that the situation in north korea, and also iran, could wind up dominating a lot of his second term. alex? >> okay. kristen, thank you very much for that from the white house. >> thank you. >> about ten minutes or so from now we're going to talk with congresswoman loretta sanchez. she's here in studio. she's of course a member of the homeland security committee and we're going to ask her directly how serious is
, and the accusations flying back and forth about chemical weapons. the obama administration has said in the past this would be a game changer that is a red line. as we were discussing earlier with iran watson, tens of thousands of people have been readily killed by conventional weapons, why would this make it different? >> i think the great fear that the u.s. has, that the obama administration has, certainly the israelis have, if these weapons, if these stockpiles got into the wrong hands, they sense right now -- i think they still sense, that the syrian military of president bashar al assad, even though he's desperate and may be on his last leg, he's probably not going to use expensively chemical weapons. but they fear these weapons could get in the hands of terrorists, sympathizers to al qaeda, if it got into the hands of hezbollah which the u.s. and israel see as an extension in effect of iran, there would be deep concern. i don't think the israelis would allow that to happen. i think they would use military force to prevent that if necessary. and i suspect the united states would as well. so
't say what the suspects were wanted for. the lockdown was lifted at noon. >>> the obama administration is beefing up the west coast missile defense in response to threat business north korea. the tests of technology. the pentagon is increasing the number of interceptors on the coast of california and alaska from 30 to 44. the new interceptors are scheduled to be deployed by 2017. lawmakers in maryland passed a measure banning capital punishment. maryland's general assembly approved the bill. maryland's governor is expected to sign it. the supports of the bill argue that it's costly, racially biased and a poor deter ant to crime. >>> before you couldn't assume this weekend, consider this is the $16,000 beer and that doesn't include the ride in the back of the car. >>> back here in 10 minute, how long will it be for your saturday and sunday. what you can expect this weekend.

governors asking, republican governors and democratic governors and the obama administration says yes, provided we protect the welfare and work requirements. republicans decided to lie about it and say the president and the administration did exactly the opposite of what they actually did. he took the work requirements out of welfare. he just wants a free ride for everybody. he's buying votes with the free welfare, obama money. it's not true at all. it was the opposite of what the administration had done. the republicans thought they had something. mitt romney made a campaign ad out of it. a few days before the election, romney made another campaign ad out of the same untrue thing. it was a lie. it was debunked. it was one of the brighter, more obvious campaigns of a campaign filled with lies. it was the lie you only try in the hottest heat of an election year when you are desperate because nothing else is working. now, bizarrely, in cold, cold march, it is back. republicans are pushing a bill right now in this congress to stop the thing that only existed in mitt romney's campaign ads
